Extra School Supply Kits Available

Right now, there are limited quantities of all kits except for 4th grade available. If you are interested in ordering, contact Jennifer Musser at jmusserfamily@aol.com. 
Book Launch Event with Mrs. Jennifer Maschari

St. Brigid teacher and author, Jennifer Maschari, will be celebrating the launch of her newest middle grade novel, THINGS THAT SURPRISE YOU, on  September 9th from 1 - 3 pm at the Barnes and Noble off of Sawmill Road in Dublin ( 3685 W Dublin Granville Rd). Books will be available for purchase, and there will be unicorn-themed cupcakes and other fun! 

THINGS THAT SURPRISE YOU is the story of 12-year-old Emily Murphy's difficult transition to middle school. It's a bighearted poignant novel about the often shifting bonds of family and friendship. It's perfect for readers in grades 5 - 8. Kirkus Reviews calls it "a fine read" and School Library Journal says, "Readers will relate to Emily's growing pains and the rewards of finding positive support."
